The Bill Album a gift for the opening of Paris Hilton’s club?

Well I received an e-mail today, even though it was sent on the 21st, which figures since I’ve checked my e-mail only today and I think Monday so yeah. This is the message I received:

I’m seeking Matthew Petty, presumably the author of the Bill Album. I’m seeking his permission to include them in a mix cd to be given out as a party favor at Paris Hilton’s club opening July 4th in Miami.

Thank you


Mark Hopkins
IS Director

Well I gave him some contact information to get a hold of Petty, but as it turns out Petty and I will be out of town all of next week, well leaving on Sunday, and returning on the second of July. So I guess we’ll have to send permission blindly, but that really doesn’t matter since the Bill Album is a not for profit kind of thingy.

Oh yeah go check out Jmweirick’s blog, it finally has the new skin applied, and is looking good.

Apple Makes the Switch

To what? To Intel/x86 based CPUs. Within 2 years, Apple will have completely dumped the IBM/Motorola PowerPC chip architecture. I though they (Apple) are evil. They were, but now they aren’t. Why? With Apple now using Intel chips, Intel will have to become more creative and actually produce much better chips than what they have been producing. Besides, Apple does have a better sense of design than Dell.

FireFox Ads…

Supposedly, some time a week ago Mozilla Europe launched a few FireFox promotional videos, which have spread ‘like wildfire’ on the net. According to ZDnet UK by the end of the weekend there were 300,000 hits, and close to 500,000 hits by Tuesday.

Mozilla EU didn’t have the money, at least not yet, to put the ads on TV so they are relying on word of mouth and the massive e-mail chain to spread the adds like wildfire.
